    Question Changing The Background To My Finder Troubles
    I'm pretty sure this is a common question, and Iíve looked everywhere for the answer and I have found just what I was looking for many times over, however. I'm having an issue locating the background option after opening the ' show options window.'

    Where there is supposed to be a list of background options: White, color, picture, etc there isn't a backgrounds option available? I Added screen shots along with this post-of what I'm talking about below. I would greatly appreciate any help.

    I'm currently running 10.6.6, 2.8GHz Intel core 2 Duo (Iím not sure if knowing this will make a difference but it couldn't hurt).


    Thank you

    Thanks for replying, unfortunately the link you provided is about G5 cooling systems, I couldn't find anything related on that page.

    As robduckyworth has pointed out, that option is only available in icon view.

    It is not an option in list, column or CoverFlow views.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    HAHA! I'm so sorry, I didn't see your attachment. I tried it in icon view and it worked. I don't normally use it- Which is probably why I was having such a hard time.

    Thanks for everything.
